Time Attendance and Access Control systems

 Are you familiar with the Time & Attendance or Access Control systems?

Biometrics technology can be used as a type of employee time management system because of its ability to recognise people’s unique physiological characteristics. Biometrics based time and attendance terminals are becoming increasingly popular in today’s market because of their many benefits (and, lets face it, hand or face scanning equipment is just pretty awesome!). Because biometrics terminals read a person’s unique fingerprint, iris, hand shape, or face shape, they ensure that employees cannot clock in for one another, thereby preventing employee time theft.

One of the most prevalent biometric technologies is the fingerprint recognition system; by placing a finger on the scanner, the time clock terminal reads the fingerprint and allows the person to clock in or out.

The Biometric captures unique “minutia points” on the hand of the employee and measures between the points, then hashes the measurement to a single unique value that is transmitted for verification.

This technology is not restricted to just hands and fingers; there are terminals that scan a person’s iris to recognise the individual. Additionally, certain systems capture an image of a person’s unique face shape and use this to allow employees access to features on the terminal.

The technology used in biometric systems cannot be used for any purpose other than for access control and time and attendance. No other system uses biometric templates.

There are two types of technologies commonly used for fingerprint biometric identification: capacitive and image-based. Capacitive scanners work like touchscreens; an electronic pulse senses the ridges of fingerprints to map-out merge and end-points. Image-based scanners take a picture of the fingerprint to create the biometric template.

Since no personal information beyond the biometric template and employee number is involved, there is no risk of any sensitive information being compromised in any shape or form. That’s why, with Insync's fingerprint biometric time and attendance solutions, you can be rest assured your personal information and biometric data are safe and secure.

With these in mind Insync Solutions Limited offers a wide range of Time attendance and Access control products with features such as card readers (RFID), fingerprint readers, face recognition systems and password/Pin entry systems.
